Into History

A  L  O  H  A !
Our actions entrench 

the power of the light 

on this planet. 

Every positive thought 

we pass between us 

makes room for 

more light. 

And if we do more than think, 

then our actions clear the path 

for even more light. 

That is why forgiveness 

and compassion must become 

more important principles 

in public life.

          John Lewis

If you're not hopeful and optimistic, 

then you just give up. 

You have to take the long hard look 

and just believe that 

if you're consistent, 

you will succeed.

I like the quotations you wrote from John Lewis – what a peace warrior he was. My late husband and I went to one of his book signing in Decatur, GA, in 2014 I think. There were many people there but he took the time to greet each. He asked me how long I had been in the US and gave me a strong handshake. So sad to see him go and such a loss for Atlanta, Georgia and the country too.

Aloha Cloudia, John Lewis will forever inspire us all, he was active up to the very end, and hopefully we'll bring to reality all that he's fought for all of his days. Lovely quotes.
